My 10 yr old has been caught several times lying. Some bad, some not-so-bad but still the point. I have tried to explain it is unacceptable and consequences are much worse when I find out it's a lie rather than her just telling the truth. Tonight, she stole her sisters MP3 player because she was looking for hers and could not find it. She was told she had to find it so her thought was to take her sisters (they are identical-dumb move Santa!) and then tell me she found it. Nothing too serious has been lied about in the past, but it's enough I don't trust her and as she gets older, what do I allow her to do with no trust? Is this a stage?
